New Things Under The Sun

Ecclesiastes 1:9 NKJV

That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.

In the past, I applied the above verse in resignation because I felt there was after all, nothing new that lay under the sun. Sometimes, I used it with great relief because I felt that I didn’t have to think so much because the solution already existed somewhere on the earth. I guess my feelings were valid in as far as my knowledge was at that point. However, ignorance of a truth still prevents one from walking in the freedom of that truth. 

I got a revelation a few days ago while watching a sermon. The preacher said that God is waiting to give some secrets to the children of God that will dwell with him and commune with Him. His opinion was that there are new things that don’t exist yet, that God will reveal to a chosen few. Right there and then, the following scripture came to mind and quickly connected the dots for me. 

Ephesians 2:6 New King James Version (NKJV)

and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

See, it’s true that nothing is new UNDER the sun but THAT’S NOT WHERE WE ARE POSITIONED. As children of God, we are seated in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus! In addition to that, the Bible says in 1st Corinthians 2:16  that we have the mind of Christ!

In short, this matter is sealed. We are spiritually seated in HEAVENLY PLACES so that we can bring NEW solutions from there to here, UNDER the sun where the world currently sees us. As children of God, made righteous by salvation, we are able to do this. 

Because of this, I would like to believe that there are still new innovative businesses that are going to be born, new scientific discoveries, new artistic ventures and new positive human advancements of great value. 

Because this is true, I believe that new terrifying situations like COVID-19 also have new Heavenly solutions.  God isn’t running around Heaven holding His head and wondering where the treatment will come from. He already sorted this matter at the cross. Because of that, Christians can appropriate the healing for it straight from Heaven to earth because God has a new solution to combat this “new” negative situation. I watched a testimony on Faith TV about a healing from COVID-19 after a word of healing was sent over the phone to a couple that had tested positive. Instantly, they were healed. Such is God’s power. 

He is such a gracious God and has already prepared for conclusive treatment in the form of medicines and healthcare too, to make sure more people get well. His mercy surely endures forever and He wants us well!

I don’t in any way belittle anything that’s happened. I also do not deny the severity of the situation. However, I simply can’t deny the power of our God who already put in place measures for new multiple solutions to be found even way before this situation occurred. Because of these solutions, the world has seen many recoveries and will continue to see many more. 

COVID aside, there is a lot to be grateful for; God is still in the business of doing NEW, awesome things every day. I am happy that we can trust such a good father. 

Stay safe under God’s shelter of His word and presence. He is good.
